The Elusive Highlander
The Campbell Brothers Trilogy Book 1
by Ju Ephraime

Genre:
Historical Romance, Time Travel

A WARRIOR TOO ELUSIVE TO CAPTURE 
He is a Scottish Laird who lives in a world of Druid magic and ancient
customs, hand fasted to the sister of his rival clan, MacDougall.
Alasdair thought he was doing the right thing trying to bring peace
to the region. But he is murdered on the eve of his wedding. Not
willing to accept his death, his mother, a Druid priestess, performs
a geas to keep him alive. But something went awry because, as the
last word of the geas was spoken, Alasdair is trapped in time where
he wanders the earth for centuries. The only one who can bring him
back home is his betrothed. He has given up on ever finding her until
she walks into his office in twentieth century Manhattan.

A WOMAN TOO STRONG WILLED TO TAME 
Coira Ainsley is a happy-go-lucky
young woman living in twenty-first century Manhattan. Her job as a
travel agent takes her all over. She loves the work she does and is
excellent at it. That is until she follows her client into his office
and finds herself in the fourteenth century at Inveraray Keep in the
Highlands of Scotland. At first, Coira thinks a prank is being played
on her until she sees the giant, wearing nothing but a kilt and a
studded leather strap across his massive chest approach her. Not one
given to swooning, Coira finds herself welcoming the darkness that
come over her as she loses consciousness, without learning that the
naked giant is her betrothed from another time… another place. Will
she give in and accept what has been pre-destined or will she fight
to get back to the life she knows and loves?






A Knight's Love
The Campbell Brothers Trilogy Book 2

Fighting alongside his two brothers, Garvin Campbell of Clan Campbell is
content to remain in the shadows. After all, he’s lived most of his
adult life as a Knight Templar, and that requires him being in the
shadows, not seen or heard. “Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed
Nomini tuo da gloriam; (Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto
thy Name, give glory).” That was the rule of the Templars until
they were forced to disband at the request of King Philip IV "the Fair" of France.
Many of the Order's members in France were arrested and tortured. However,
Scotland did not get involved in the arrests and prosecution of the
Knights. There was no recognized king of the Scots, and with the
Bruce having already been excommunicated, the Roman church had little
say in Scottish politics, so Garvin returned to his clan to use his
skills in the fight against the English for Scottish independence.
Having been told all her life to avoid the Campbells, the last thing Lady
Helen is thinking about is falling in love with a Campbell, and a
Knight Templar at that. She is aware the Templar Knight has taken a
vow of abstinence, so when Garvin Campbell comes to her clan to
deliver the decree from Robert the Bruce, Helen is unprepared for the
connection she immediately feels for the knight. She dismisses it as
butterflies at meeting a knight, but fate has other plans for her and
Garvin, as he becomes her reason for living and he forgoes his
training of remaining in the shadows as he surrenders to love.



His For the Claiming
The Campbell Brothers Trilogy book 3

Tristan (Tris) Campbell accepts the fact that his brother came back to them
from the land of the fae. He accepts that life in the Highlands with
his clan is fraught with strife and danger… that they will be
forever warring with opposing clans for Scottish independence. What
he doesn’t expect is that, like his brother Alasdair, he, too, will
travel through time to find his one true love, Lady Brianne O’Connor.
Lady Brianne O’Connor has vowed never to take a husband, and as she is
her father’s only child and heir, he does not dissuade her but
allows her to live as she pleases. After her new husband is murdered,
or so she thinks, she takes to unexplainable weeping, spending all
her days and nights in her bedchamber at Kilchurn Castle mourning
him. That is the only place in which she feels safe… the only room
where she can be with the love of her life. She is torn with grief by his untimely death.
Tristan comes upon a woman in a vision, and now he must find a way to connect
with her… a woman he is convinced he knows but, for the life of
him, can’t recall from where. Bent on finding the woman who stirs
his senses like no other, Tris will not rest until he can feel her in his arms again…. 
Will he succeed? Will Lady Brianne’s mourning finally be over?


She was lying in bed at Kilchurn Castle waiting for sleep to claim her when the warrior entered her room. He was naked as he had been on the shore of the loch. He blew out the candles and climbed into bed with her and proceeded to take her into his arms. She pulled away and relit the candles.
You should not be in my bedchambers, Warrior.”
Why not? We are soon to be man and wife, and how else are we to get to know each other intimately?”
We are not yet man and wife, and you move too fast.”
Once again he took her into his arms and looked down at her lips hungrily. Then he claimed her mouth.
Brianne did not resist the kiss but surrendered her lips to him, yielding to his masterful arms and mouth, determined to understand the feelings he evoked in her. She kissed him back with just as much as fervor as he had kissed her. She was enjoying this immensely. It made her feel as if any minute she would fly away from her bed. She was preparing herself to take flight when a voice interrupted her pleasure.
Open your eyes, Brianne. I want you to see whose kisses ye are enjoying.”
Brianne wasn’t aware that her eyes were closed. But they flew open immediately at the sound of his voice. “Warrior! How dare you invade my dream?”
I dare because ye are mine.”
I am not yours, Warrior. I belong to no man.”
Ye are. I have already claimed ye.”
